Zak Penn shares inside scoop on Hulk-sequel

Penn's original draft of "The Incredible Hulk",which was rejected,opened the eyes of some of today's current filmakers...

Wizard caught up with Zak Penn, the screenwriter for “The Incredible Hulk” for the scoop on where he stands on the sequel to the Ang Lee-directed 2003 movie. Penn, who is profiled in the Wizard 2007 Movie Spectacular that comes out Dec. 6, shared his insight on where the next “Hulk” movie is, which is slated to be directed by Louis Letterier (“The Transporter 2”).

“My draft of the first ‘Hulk’ opened with him already having transformed into the Hulk,” explained Penn. “It opened with him at a roadside bar with these guys picking on him and him saying, ‘Don’t make me angry. You won’t like me when I’m angry,’ and then transforming, and then you flash back to reveal how it all happened.

“Part of the way that this ‘Hulk’ came about is that they went back and read my draft. They went back through all of the stuff that they had commissioned and said, ‘This is more of the tone that we wanted.’ So it doesn’t really require us ignoring the first movie, but that said, there’s a lot of stuff in the first movie that I’m not even going to touch on.”
